Fortnite is back online and released the brand new 4.2 update,, which is now live on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mobile devices.
The patch notes were also released if you want a closer look at the changes.
But as with every update, there’s also a number of secrets hidden inside the game’s code, which having been datamined has revealed a number of new items on their way to the game.
There are new upcoming cosmetics, including new skins, pickaxes, gliders and back bling.
In total there are five skins, three pickaxes, two gliders and three new pieces of back bling.
These new details were found by TwoEpicBuddies originally who posted the new items on Twitter. Although, for the time being names and rarities for these items are currently unknown.
It’s equally unclear when these new items could go live in the game, but it’s likely coming in the next few days as the shop is refreshed every evening.
